Oleg Oprisco | on Tumblr (Ukraine)

Born in the small city of Lviv in western Ukraine, photographer Oleg Oprisсo worked as an operator at a photo lab from the age of 16. At age 18, he moved to Kiev, where he began his professional photography career. At age 23, he changed from digital capture to film.

Oprisсo is known for his beautiful and very inspired stagging: “Each of my photos is inspired by a scene from real life. That is the perfect source of inspiration for me as there is so much beauty to it. Perhaps today on your way to work, when you were observing the world around you, that was the scene to inspire my next photograph. Of course there are my own changes that I add to the reality, such as characters, props, location, and light… I am constantly involved in a search for inspiration and ideas.” (src. Seamless)

kuzcotopia-summer-getaway asked: In America, there are numerous different accents (Southern, New Yorker, Midwestern, Californian etc.) even though everybody is still speaking English. Is it like that with other languages? Are there different kinds of accents in other languages?


Of course! People from South America can largely tell what country (or part of a country) someone is from by the accent of their Spanish. Every language has different accents…it would be interesting to know which language has the /most/ accents though.

Accents can form two different ways…first, by simple isolation. All languages constantly change, and given time, places that are more culturally cohesive or isolated will change in different ways from each other. This is what happened in the American south, for example. It’s also how the “American” accent drifted apart from the “English” accent.

On the other hand, some accents are holdovers from when people actually spoke different languages (like the way that French people have a “French” accent when they speak English.) These accents persist long after the local population has (for the most part) stopped speaking that language. This is the case for the “Irish” accent, for example, or the ‘Minnesota’ accent (Norwegian, Swedish, and German roots.) Of course, people still speak Irish in Ireland and even Norwegian in Minnesota, but for the most part, we consider these just another “accent” of English while forgetting that they have roots in other languages.

I’d be curious to know which language has the most recognizable accents to native speakers…probably English or Spanish, just because they’re very widely spoken, but I dunno!
